The wave of revolutions in 1848-49 shook the whole of Europe, with their main centres in France, the German and Italian states and Hungary. Many of the Berliners who went out on to the streets on 18 March 1848 for a better life were ordinary people, extremely poor and often young. Apprentices, artisans and workers, with a few women among them as well, were united in their courageous act of putting their lives on the line for improved social conditions and civil liberties.

255 victims of the March Revolution in Berlin are buried in this cemetery, which was specially laid out for them. The fallen barricade fighters are commemorated at the actual scene; and at the same time two revolutions are remembered, for it is here that the victims of the revolution in 1918-19 are also buried.

A 30m long sea container has been converted into an exhibition pavilion and stands in front of the cemetery. The exhibition presents the March Revolution in Berlin in its national and European context, with those eventful days vividly brought to life by pictures, documents and biographies of the March fighters. The Cemetery of the March Fallen is being developed as an exhibition venue and commemorative site with lottery funding from 2018 until 2020 and already includes a new outdoor exhibition on the 1918-19 revolution, on commemorative sites to the 1848-49 revolution in Germany and Europe and on the history of the cemetery to date. The museum offering is rounded off by two new exhibition films and a digital level.
